You are very warmly invited to join us at our service of thanksgiving and celebration for the work of Welcare over the last 125 years.
Welcare was founded in 1894 to support single, homeless young girls, women and their babies. For 125 years Welcare has worked closely with local churches and developed services to reflect the needs of local communities. Welcare works with children and families who struggle to face major challenges of poverty, domestic abuse and mental and physical ill health by offering a range of group work programmes and individual support.
Welcare will host a Service of Thanksgiving in Southwark Cathedral at 11am on Saturday 15th June, to celebrate work with families over the years, and to look forward to a bright and positive future. Our President, The Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Rev Christopher Chessun, will officiate and preach. Volunteers, staff, and young people will contribute to the service.
